5 STAR REVIEW: Paper Swans by Jessica Thompson

paper swans


Ben Lawrence seems to have it all – the hot job, the flashy car, the luxurious apartment. But one tragic day in his past mars his future.

Since the events of that day he hasn’t truly got close to anyone.

He made a promise that love was the price he would pay for his mistakes.

When Effy Jones – a bright, ambitious charity founder – walks into the PR firm where Ben works, neither realise that their lives are about to be turned upside down.

Paper Swans tells of how love can conquer all, and how when everything is broken one person can help to put the pieces together

My Review 

I have never read anything by this author before and I am so glad I picked this up. This was a truly amazing book it took me 2 or 3 days to read because of the smaller print in the book which I didn’t mind as it meant that I was part the story for much longer.

I think this has been mentioned in other reviews but I also wanted to mention it because  it was a very important part of the book . I really like the fact that some of the story was based around mental health issues and Jessica Thompson writes about it with so much depth and knowledge. It also highlights the fact that none of us are exempt to having to deal with these issues in our our lives or that of friends and even the high flyers can have problems

All the characters were likable and well written and Effy was defiantly a character I could be friends with.

I loved the chapters in Kampala I felt as though I was there and made you understand what life  must be like there.

Its very difficult for me to go any further without spoiling this for others

Well written beautiful and heart warming.
